i don't see why not. it's a chemical reaction with the rust. a good rinse and brushing with a steel wire brush should remove anything you may be worried about. of course unless you have other uses for the etch you may just want to put that $15 into a new charcoal grate (about $11) and a new flip-up sides cooking grate (about $18 i think) and be done. z
